Field of Interests
Input-Output Methodology; especially applied to Rural Development.- As a former office adviser in rural areas, I keep the interest in EU Rural policy from an academic point of view. The EU Funds has to face an important challenge: to show how effective these funds will be; hence the evaluation became a key-element in the rural policy.
History of Economic Thought; I have an espcial interest in the anthropological and ethical bases of human behavior, which have lead me to focus on pre-clasical economic thought.and heterodox schools.
